To celebrate Potato Week here at Food52, we’ve partnered with Potatoes USA to share ways we love to use the staple ingredient in meals that bring people together. Inspired takes on these classic recipes showcase the best of what this versatile and nutrition-packed kitchen player has to offer.

Predictability can be a good thing in the kitchen (especially when baking!), but great cooking often comes from shaking things up. Experimenting with new ingredients or different seasonings can bring a whole new dimension to a classic meal, adding an inventive edge to comforting nostalgia. Here, we’ve gathered four familiar potato dishes, each with a unique twist. Who knows? Maybe they’ll become your family’s new classics.

Caramelizing onions elevates this simple recipe, complementing the natural sweetness of potatoes.

Crisp and flavorful, with an aromatic kick.

For her go-to gratin, our co-founder relies on garlic-infused milk instead of cream.

Use a handy meat hammer to really flatten your potatoes before crisping them in the pan. You'll get a thinner creamy potato center and a thicker, crispier crust.

For a hearty, fast meal I like to boil potatoes together with onions, cut up kale and/or carrots and smash it all up with some butter/white pepper/nutmeg. If you want to be fancy, put some grated cheese on top and broil. Or - I leave out the kale and mix in fresh, cut spinach at the end. For carnivores, serve sausage or pork chops with gravy on the side. As you can see, I am a simple cook.
